My first Xmas away from my folks went swimmingly. Motueka was lovely and warm, and there was much chillaxing and ridiculous amounts of food. Got to catch up with cornix
briefly in Nelson too, which was nice.
Got a pretty good bundle of presents - a rimu chopping board, a mortar and pestle, a copy of the complete works of Lewis Carroll (my parents must have forgotten that I already have that, but it's the thought that counts I suppose), many chocolates and sweeties, and a nice towel. I believe there are other things on the way from my sister, also.
And I bought myself copies of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
, Great Expectations
, and To Kill a Mockingbird
at the local Sallies.
My only complaint is the ridiculous amount of travelling I've done in the last few days. I never want to step inside a moving vehicle again (unless it's a space rocket, in which case I'll make an exception).
And here's an obligatory music video!
They're called Klaxons, they're from the UK, and apparently play 'acid-rave sci-fi punk-funk'. Anyway, they're awesome, check out the vid.
